Its a bit of a family in-joke, when you have some kind of medical issue – “Put some Calendula Cream on it” is the first thing my Mother will say. She taught me everything I know, so I made this balm to her recipe. A pot to keep in your pocket for skin emergencies on the go, a very nice lip balm or hand cream – pop it on your insect bites, small burns, you name it, she’ll look after it. Fast absorbing, and the added bonus of a wonderful earthy scent.

Available in 15ml recyclable aluminium pot.

Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Calendula Flowers, Beeswax.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil is infused for 6 weeks with Calendula flowers grown and harvested in my own small garden in North London. It is then blended with just enough carefully sourced British Beeswax to create a soft, solid balm for easy application.

Use: Carry in your pocket or purse for those dry skin emergency moments. Sweet Almond Oil is wonderfully nourishing for the skin, and the calendula adds a wonderfully soothing quality – perfect for minor burns, insect bites and scrapes, as well as helping to calm minor skin ailments such as rosacea and eczema. Just apply a small amount to the area that needs looking after, and let this golden wonder do its work. Fast absorption means you won’t leave oily hand marks all over the place as well, bonus. Works wonderfully as a lip balm or hand cream.

Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert before using for medical purposes.

I follow a loose Pagan-Witch path, learning with the seasons and finding things that help me cope with the ever-increasingly difficult times we live in. These are the offerings I am sharing here with you, in the hope that they give you some tools to cope as well. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

    This Calendula balm really works on dry and abused skin. It smells like a meadow and absorbs really quickly into your skin without any greasy residue. Kind, gentle but strong this is a must for any hard working hands or dry skin patches.

    Beautifully presented and fast acting. I applied it on my lips and felt its soothing effects immediately. Delicious.

    With all the extra hand washing a pandemic brings, my hands were in a total state. It got to the point where I had to remove my wedding ring, as the skin underneath got all scaly and was spreading. I’ve been applying the balm a couple of times a day while I work, and I’m already seeing a difference. It’s light, smells nice but not overpowering, and I love the plastic free packaging. It came in recycling packaging, with a handwritten note, and dried lavender, which made the whole opening experience truly special. Thoughtful touches make all the difference.

    This is a beautiful balm that helps soothe weird skin reactions I get from dust/bites. It has a really neutral gentle fragrance which suits me fine. It’s just great to support an independent female led business that makes ethical and natural products.

    The best balm for hands in these pandemic times but it also worked like an absolute miracle on my sunburn this summer. It completely soothed it. It’s also nice on bug bites. An essential to keep on hand for sure.

    Used this product due to cracked hands caused by the additional hand-washing and anti-bac gel of COVID and found it to be excellent. Far better than any other moisturizer and soothes instead of stings delicate skin. Also used on spotty patches on my face and had very good results.
